Bellevue wins Port Clinton golf invite


A season ago the Bellevue golf team won every regular season tournament and invitational in which it played. Except one.

The Redmen rectified that shortcoming Wednesday by winning the Port Clinton High School Golf Classic at Catawba Island Club.

Bellevue won the 20-team event with a team score of 323, 18 strokes better than that of second place Padua (341).

“The guys had a little extra impetus I guess to get it done,” Bellevue coach Jan TerVeen said. “We didn’t play our best but we had enough to get it done.”

Woodmore finished seventh (372), Clyde took ninth (375) and Port Clinton took 10th with a team score of 381.

“As a team, very disappointed in our performance today,” Port Clinton coach Rick Dominick said. “We got smoked by three teams in our own league on our home course. If we are going to defend our SBC Championship, we need a lot of improvement in a lot of areas”

Genoa finished 13th, Oak Harbor was 15th, St. Joseph Central Catholic came in 18th and Margaretta took 19th.

Isaac Hartley sank four birdies on the day and won individual medalist honors by shooting a score of 77, two strokes better than Liberty Benton’s Adam August.

“He had a great offseason and it really has continued on into the regular season,” TerVeen said of Harley. “We’re obviously pleased but I would tell you and he would probably tell you there is room for improvement.”

Bellevue’s Thomas Pressler finished tied for third with a score of 80 while Tom Hosang shot an 82 to finish fifth overall and Dylan DeWitt had an 84 to place eighth to round out the Redmen scoring.

“Week to week we have four guys capable of being a medalist at any time,” TerVeen said.
